"Holly trees with berries red
Children early tucked in bed
Thoughts alive with holiday cheer
For Christmas morning's almost here …
It was so long ago a babe
Changed our lives with what he gave
He shared his love with everyone
This precious gift of God's own Son.
And so on Christmas day we take
The time to give and share and make
A special place inside our hearts
Where love will live and not depart.
Let's celebrate our joy and peace
Share our love with all we meet
Remembering that the newborn babe
Lives safely in our hearts this way
Lives safely in our hearts today!"
As a follow up activity after reading this little prayer with your children, have them draw pictures of the message in each paragraph, and collate the pages into a little prayer book for them.
